Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, J Redmond Photography specializes in modern wedding, portraiture, and real estate photography.
Growing up in a small village in Nova Scotia I was inspired by surrounding family and friends to feed my creative side. Whether it be through writing, drawing, or music I was always able to share a creative outlet. However it was not until I enrolled at NSCADU and stepped foot into the dark room that I fell in love with photography.
During my time at the university and continuing since then, I have been able to develop and refine my skills while working with other aspiring artists, as well as accomplished ones. I use these technical skills and artistic inspiration to combine them with my own creative edge. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with a major in photography. I now professionally shoot a wide range of subject matter from real estate to wedding photography. On my spare time I like to experiment photographing friends and self portraiture in a conceptual and surreal manner.
I live life behind a view-finder. If I am not holding my camera I can guarantee I am imagining a little box to composite daily sites and happenings. I am a photographer by profession and through passion, I love my job and can’t imagine myself doing anything else.
- Abigail Johnston: It was an honor to have a good friend from home to be able to take such amazing photos at our wedding for us. She is an easy going, understanding and comforting kind of person that made us feel relaxed in knowing that our pictures would turn out great.
